55-year-old alcoholic farmer murders wife, surrenders


TIRUPUR: A 55-year-old farmer has beaten his wife to dying and surrendered prior to police close to Uthiyur right here on Saturday.

The deceased used to be recognized as Poongodi, 46, wife of S Duraisamy, of Olapalayam close to Kurukkapalayam at Uthiyur.

According to police, Duraisamy used to be an alcoholic and his wife had warned him to not experience two-wheeler, as he used meet with accidents regularly.


When Duraisamy tried to take possession of motorcycle, while his sons have been using, Poongodi intervened and stopped him from using it for concern that he may meet with some twist of fate.


After a while, he made a subject matter of it and quarrelled with Poongodi. In a fit of rage, he attacked her using an iron rod, killing her at the spot, an investigation officer said.


Duraisamy due to this fact surrendered prior to the Uthiyur police, who produced him prior to an area court that remanded him in judicial custody. Later, he used to be lodged at the Coimbatore Central Prison.


Meanwhile, Poongodi’s frame used to be despatched to the government medical institution in Kangeyam for postmortem.
